Scout Promise and Law

Scouts Australia recognises that what we offer is as relevant as ever, and can help young people navigate their way through modern life.  From as young as five years old, our members are introduced to our values at the first step in the Scouting journey – learning the Australian Scout Promise and the Australian Scout Law.

The Australian Scout Promise

There are two versions of the Australian Scout Promise.

Individuals may select which version they wish to make.

On my honour, I promise
To do my best,
To be true to my spiritual beliefs,
To contribute to my community and our world,
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law.


On my Honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to my God, and
To the Queen of Australia,
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law.
